Modern-day Designer Bag Icons to Have and to Hold
Bags have amassed an incessant ‘I need that’ reaction from women over the years. What kicked off as a functional accessory to carry things around, has now turned into an object of desire that is giving diamonds a run for its money. A branded extension to our limbs, Le Mill gives you the 101 on the world of designer handbags.
Bags are primarily functional accessories. Designer bags make sure your favorite utilitarian pieces are crafted from the finest of fabrications and have a lengthened shelf life, while also making you look extremely chic. Totes, minis, crossbody bags, etc. are everyday styles that are curated and crafted to fit the needs of the contemporary woman.
Designer bags are one part of the fashion industry where the fit doesn’t matter. You could belong to any body type, worrying about the adaptability of bags is never an issue. Investing in designer bags will not only maintain but also increase the value of the piece, with wearability never being a concern.
Heritage luxury houses have devised their own iconic bags that will definitely be worth breaking the bank for. Over the years, some bags have snowballed cult status and deserve a spot in your wardrobe. Checkout some modern-day designer bag icons housed at Le Mill:
